Summary
Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is getting ready for a transition to the 5+3+3+4 pedagogical system
The NEP 2020 suggested a new pedagogical framework that separates education for children into four stages

According to the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020's recommendations, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is getting ready for a transition to the 5+3+3+4 pedagogical system. The board will soon issue a directive requesting that all Indian schools associated with the CBSE board make preparations for a switch from the present 10+2 system to the suggested 5+3+3+4 one.

Nidhi Chhibber, the chairperson of the CBSE, said the board will implement the change in the next academic year. She added that CBSE will start the creation of a school registry, teacher registry, and student registry in order to track the growth of these resources throughout the various stages of schooling. The board "will be issuing directions for the adoption of the new 5+3+3+4 system of education for all the schools instead of 10+2 as envisaged in NEP" she said.

The official of CBSE stated that the NEP's distinguishing characteristic is the participation of children from three to six in formal education. She also emphasised how many CBSE schools are already involved in the teaching of younger children through their preparatory and pre-nursery programmes. The board will make an effort to officially include this in the CBSE system architecture.

The NEP 2020 suggested a new pedagogical framework that separates education for children into four stages. The first stage is the five-year foundational stage. Preparatory and middle stages will follow, each lasting three years. Four years will elapse during the secondary stage. According to the new classifications, children and adolescents go through different stages of cognitive development.
